Your garage floor takes a lot of abuse each time you drive your vehicle(s) in and out of your garage. While you may not take the time to think much about your garage floor, perhaps this information will cause you to take a pause and consider how taking a little bit of time can benefit your entire property. Painting your garage floor is not a necessary task, but there are certain benefits that come from painting it.
First, it helps keep your garage clean. Concrete is notorious for producing dust. Concrete slowly breaks down into microscopic dust particles every time your garage floor is walked on, driven on, or even cleaned. These dust particles become airborne any time there is movement on the garage floor, making your garage dusty and easily attracting dust into your home and your vehicle. By painting your garage floor, you are protecting your concrete from breaking down.
It also makes your entire garage seem brighter. Concrete slabs tend to absorb light, while a painted surface is known to reflect light and make a room seem bigger, brighter, and cleaner.
A painted garage floor offers good protection against mold, mildew, oil stains, chemical spills, and water damage. Concrete absorbs liquid, while surfaces painted with epoxy paint allow spills to be easily wiped up quickly. This protects the floor from spots caused by your vehicles.
And last, but not least, a painted garage floor just looks good! A well-kept, painted garage floor can add value to your home. From the added protection, the cleanliness of the garage, the cleanliness of the home, and the appearance of the garage – a painted garage floor is something that potential buyers will thoroughly appreciate.
